spending cuts as we discussed. not only the debt ceiling but also the sequestration, which is still on the table. that was pushed two months down the road and has to be dealt with but the president says he's not going to talk about that without discussions on more revenue, perhaps more tax hikes. is that on top of the ones with the fiscal cliff deal? >> when you borrow money and raise offsets. the president made it clear he wants that to come from revenue. the next thing they need to look at is spending cuts and congress is going to push for that. especially given the president got pretty close to what he wanted in the last fiscal cliff fight. it's going to be hard to ask for more for taxes getting raised. >> i remember george w. bush coming out in his second term talking about political capital he earned and his plans to use it. if we look at the political capital this president earned, how much has he used and how much is left? >> he's careful not to say the m word, mandate. which is what president bush said after he tried to privatize social security. the president has a fair amo
